After defeating Boston College, the Dutchmen trailed the Golden Gophers 2-1 in the first period but scored 3 goals in a 1:54 span and never looked back. Union went 16-0-1 in their last 17 games to capture their first NCAA hockey title. Relive it below!
(7) UAlbany Men's Lacrosse Beats Denver to Advance to Final Four
In 2018, the Great Danes made the Final Four in Lacrosse becoming the second UAlbany program to make a Final Four and the first in Men's Lacrosse history.
